Who can visit an assessment centre?
We are only testing individuals who meet the Ontario Government criteria for testing.  This includes individuals who:

  • are showing symptoms of COVID-19
  • are direct contacts of a confirmed case
  • were alerted to an exposure by their public health unit or the COVID-19 Alert App
  • live or work in a setting that has a COVID-19 outbreak
  • are in a high-risk group as defined by provincial health official
  • require a test to visit a long-term care resident
  • require a test prior to surgery


Please note that we are unable to test children under the age of 2.  Any child under the age of 2 experiencing signs or symptoms of COVID-19 can be taken to our Emergency Department for evaluation.

Tests for travel purposes
COVID-19 tests for the purposes of travel are not provided at COVID-19 Assessment Centres as they are not covered by the provincial testing guidelines. Individuals should explore other options for COVID-19 tests available. 

Our Assessment Centre will not be testing individuals who do not meet the above criteria.  Making an appointment does not guarantee that you will be tested.
Please complete the Government of Ontario’s Self-Assessment Tool if you are unsure as to whether you should be tested.
